So as I sit and mellow out for the next little while, I am contemplating my “plan” for 2018.
2017 has been a weird roller coaster ride. Running, injuries, body imbalances, Mom and TeenThing madness and general chaos.
I have given myself some time off from running, as I needed to work on a few things. Hoping to start on fresh feet in 2018 and get back to enjoying my running, instead of seeing it as something I have to work into my schedule.
Running was my go to for joy, and giving myself some time away from any regular running has me missing it. So I am happy that that is the case. Otherwise I’d have some serious thinking to do, lol.
I have a virtual run to do this week, and would love to do some snow running….we just need the snow to stick around here 😉
One thing I am sticking to is my plan of no race registration for 2018 (THIS HAS BEEN SO FRIGGING HARD!). My muscle imbalances are a big reason for my injuries and my frustration. I need to take care of me.
As always, when approaching a new year I always have hope that it will be full of awesomeness. How that awesomeness comes my way I really don’t mind. I just always try to be thankful for things I have. This isn’t always easy, but I try my best.
Have a wonderful holiday season.
Hold those you love close.
Take some time to unplug and just enjoy the world around you.
Practice self care.
Remember that NO ONE is perfect. We don’t have to be. It is the imperfections that make us individuals.
Do not conform. Be loud.
I hope your new year brings you much awesomness, in all shapes and forms.
I hope to share my re surge of running love in the coming year 🙂

Sometimes we just need to take care of ourselves to be stronger runners! I think 2017 was a building year for me. I did three races but I trained in 2016 for one so it didn’t really count. I had some major muscle imbalances in my legs that led to a whole slew of problems. Once I got all that under control, I am a stronger runner now. Take time to work on yourself. You’ll thank yourself in the long run!
Thank you for this!!
